Create a Qwickly Cloud Assignment


1. Introduction

This guide explains how staff can set up an assignment that will allow students to submit work saved on Microsoft OneDrive or upload from a computer.  Choosing the OneDrive option is a much quicker process for students to submit (a link is created to the file rather than waiting for it to upload) and is especially suited for large file submissions such as:

  • PowerPoint with narration via voice and video
  • Video
  • Vlog
  • Podcast
  • Image and Multi-Media

Feature: Quick set up via the Qwickly tool:
In MyBeckett go to the Tools tab (menu across the top), in the Modules / Course Groups Manager & Communication tool go to 'Create Assignment', it will then allow you to set up an assignment which can be deployed quickly to multiple or single  Modules / Course Groups. Once set up students will see a cloud icon at the submission link; this type of assignment is labelled 'Qwickly Cloud Assignment'. Detailed instructions are provided at point 2 of this guide with recommended settings.

When should I use a Qwickly Cloud Assignment?
